Sanitation & Prevention

Sanitation is critical in a good fly management program. The goal of sanitation is to remove or prevent any medium where fly larvae will develop. It's also vital to remove attractive things to adult flies, such as garbage and animal waste. Moisture is a critical factor in any fly breeding material. Good drainage is also necessary, where possible.

  • Keep garbage cans and dumpsters clean.  Invade Bio Foam is an all-natural product, a probiotic used to spray on the leftover organic debris in dumpsters.  Soldier Fly larvae are commonly found around dumpsters and garbage cans. Keep tight lids on the garbage cans. Flies are attracted to odors. Keep garbage cans as far away from doors as possible to keep them from moving into the structure.

  • Repair window screens and doors. Use mesh screens on openings in the building. Where doors must be kept open for customers, trucks, etc., outfit the doors with air curtains. Air curtains can prevent fly entry if the velocity is 1,600 feet per minute or higher.

  • Pick up pet waste in the yard. Flies love to breed and lay eggs on this material because of the moisture content.

  • In-home kitchens, restaurants, and commercial kitchens, drain flies can become a problem. An excellent product to treat home drains and restaurant drains is  Invade Bio Treatment Gel. With microbes, this all-natural product eats the leftover scum in the drains.

  • Dead rodents and birds can increase a fly problem. Remove the carcasses because flies lay eggs on decomposing rodents and fowl. The eggs become maggots (larvae), and the maggots become adult flies.

  • Do not overwater indoor potted plants. The soaked soil will provide a perfect breeding area for gnats. Keep the pots well-drained.

  • Keep outdoor areas cleaned. Clean away any soiled bedding, decaying plant, straw animal matter.
